Moderate Income Housing
In Pittsburg, job growth is creating a need for more housing. KHRC and city officials have used the Moderate Income Housing Program to redevelop a city block that was once the site of an elementary school. MIH funding was used to relocate water and sewer lines and provide homebuyer assistance for the development of 10 single-family homes at an average cost of $166,750 each.
The Moderate Income Housing program serves the needs of moderate-income households that don’t qualify for federal housing assistance. MIH grants and/or loans are awarded to cities and counties to develop multi-family rental units and single-family for-purchase homes in communities with populations fewer than 60,000 people.
